Epazote, what is that is the most common phrase said next when reading a recipe

Epazote has been around for centuries but like most Mexican, Tex Mex and Latin American cuisine it has taken time to travel the seas to our plates, thankfully this is a great regular introduction to our markets

Epazote is a thick stemmed grass like plant from Mexico

It is extremely fibrous making the drying and grinding process very difficult to do while maintaining the flavour and aroma

Epazote has amazing flavour and aroma that makes the slightly awkward use worthwhile

Use with a spice cloth as you would use with bay leaves or cardamom pods, we grind the herb down as much as we can so most of the epazote can be used directly but will contain some chunky pieces, nature being nature

Primarily found in mexican dishes especially bean dishes but as with all herbs it is simply great infused in all meat and veg cuisines

Grown in Mexico

Packed in a Unit that handles Sesame Seeds, Mustard and Celery

    Amazing discovery - so different and delicious

    I'd never heard of this, but decided to give it a go; I'm so glad that I did! The flavour and aroma are both wonderful; it's so unlike anything else. I would say it's like dill weed, mint and fennel combined; but that simply fails to do justice to this marvellous stuff. Wonderful with fish. As always with SotW, the quality is unbelievable.

    Great flavour.

    I use this in home-made burgers. Sometimes I pair it with roast beef if I'm adding a tomato based BBQ sauce. I also use it in chilli near the end of cooking to give the flavour an extra dimension. It has what I can only describe as a vague floral herby note and seems to do something nice to the kidney beans. Go figure.

    Top class service, quality of products is amazing, my chilli plants are growing beautifully. Love the fact that there’s such a variety of spice mixes without salt. Customer service is brilliant as well, very good communication and sorted everything within a day. Definitely will be coming back for more.
